    this exersise remindes me of the horse stance used in martial arts. in movies the master would often have student stand with legs apart toes pointed forward in a squat position with arms straight in front of you normaly holding weights in each hand, like bukets of water. this is a type of indorance training that hardens many muscels in the arms back legs and core. i do not recomend using weight when doing this or injuries may acure. sorry for spelling errers im on a psp rigit now XD

    These breathing techniques are golden
    The complete breath from the “Yogi Science of Breath” focuses on expanding and retracting the abdomen and rib cage= its a good read

    Great article and yeah the dragon breath is pretty funny too.
    I’m doing some research on Bruce’s abs because they were amazing
    and I heard of something like this before with Conditioning coach Ian King but not like this… thanks for the secret

    Have been sitting at the computer for a few hours now reading over this blog( and enjoying it). Going back through the posts at topics of interest. Now I am just laughing my ass off…Dragon breath… . Thanks for putting all this info in one place and directing us to other places of interest. A sign of a good teacher is one who believes we can learn from many different people. Not just the one-know-it-all.
    Thanks again.

    I stumbled on this site after hours of searching for content to develop my abs and I must say that it’s a Godsend. I havn’t tried the techniques mentioned above yet but I’m trusting that they’ll work. God bless every person that put his/her two cents on this page. great post about Breath of the Dragon, Rusty. You’re da bomb man!

    Hey, thanks for the work outs! I’m a cross country runner that runs 3-4 miles daily. I really find abs intriguing so I’d like to develop my own ( I went from 150lbs to 130lbs!. :) I hope this produces some results to tighten up my waistline!

    I was investigating the new lifestyle lift, that I recently heard about, for my sagging neck. I may try Bruce’s workout plan first because I heard that doing ab type workouts will also strengthen you neck and sagging jaw line. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

    The “breath of dragon” as Rusty would call it, is technique we also use in martial arts to prevent getting the wind knocked out of you or gain back your lungs after getting hit in the solar plex!

    Wow, I just did this while sitting in my office chair at work and I’m REALLY surprised at how tense it made my abs feel! That’s so crazy!

    Thanks for the tip!

    Thats great I’ve been doing stomach vacuum for years, my only problem was the body fat covered my abs. If you were to press the side of my stomach (without me flexing) you can feel a brick wall.

    May I ask a question? After u breathe out and finish ur first rep, could u let go of ur tensing as in like if u r doin 10 reps of breath of dragon,should u keep ur abs tense all the way for all 10 reps or could u like say tense for first rep, relax the tension then tense again for 2nd rep then relax and so on for 10 reps?

    How long will this take before i can see a difference, i have an 8 pack when i flex i just can’t seem to get it to show unless I’m flexing.
    Do i have to do this for a month before it shows at all or a week or what?
    I’m 16 with a low body fat % .
    Could i just do it like 10 times a day and in a week will it work?

    Always do different ab exercises to shock your body. You don’t want your body to get used to the same routine every time you work out. In the end, you will accomplish the best results!

    I remember hearing about this long ago too. It works great. I’m an airline pilot and do ab routines while flying. Flex and contract at 370, much more intense workout than planking or crunching!

    there called isometrics the’re a tencing exercise you u focus on any part Of your body by breathing and flexing the area sorta like a body builder does on stage and in that case what u do in martial arts while punching your self in the stomach to improve your ability to take a punch in the stomach and to train a natural reaction to the action

    Interesting article..

    Bruce Lee has amazing abs due to this intense training in martial arts (cardio + strength training).

    In order to succeed in any type of fighting sport, you’ll need to develop speed, strength and agility. And all that comes with building a super solid core.

    Strong core = Strong striking force.
